Re: Bonding and Grounding of Underwater Metals

Landau,

I just looked through my owner's manual, and it doesn't refer to ABYC at all, so the systems may not be in compliance. It only states the hull plans were reviewed by ABS (American Bureau...

Re: Bonding and Grounding of Underwater Metals

I guess my specific question is: How is your Pacific Seacraft bonded?

The professional marine community very clearly articulates the need, and requirement for, bonding of underwater hull elements....

Bonding and Grounding of Underwater Metals

Can anyone advise how all their below waterline seacocks, through-hulls, and other metal elements are bonded? In theory they should all be bonded with minimum 8AWG cable and all that should be tied...

Re: Waterway Guide Beats Active Captain

I'm really happy to see that people are seeing behind the Active Captain many coats of varnish. AC engaged in a much less than professional exchange with me several years ago, and I terminated my...

Re: Storm trysail for PS37/Crealock 37

Landau,

That's pretty much it, I've always called them "pigtails". It's a short length of webbing (4-6" probably) folded over so it's several layers thick with a stainless steel ring in each end...

Re: Storm trysail for PS37/Crealock 37

Landau,

My Master Plan involved prepping the boat over the winter and sailing to Bermuda from Baltimore this may, getting back yesterday. However, a knee replacement got in the way of that.

Re: Storm trysail for PS37/Crealock 37

Lantau,

I have both. I had a third reef point put in a few years back that meets the IOC's rules for trysail area, and this past fall I bought a used trysail from Bacon. We only have jiffy...

Re: Navigation Lights

That's my question: What LED anchor light and sidelights have folks installed and are they happy with them? Specifically any fixtures that mount to the Aqua Signal Series 40 mount for the running...

Navigation Lights

I'm looking to replace the bow combination sidelight, I believe something close to an AquaSignal Series 40, and the anchor light, I think a Perko.

I'd like to go LED and would also like to stay...

Re: PSC 37 Hydrovane Installation

It might make more sense, but it would also cost more cents. A-brackets run close to $2000, the H is $500, and the fab shop I go to will probably run me between $500-700 for the bracket. So,...

Re: Fuel Tank

I had to re-do our tank, it began leaking at the aft bottom corners due to corrosion (bilge water). I did go with aluminum again, I think it's a fine material properly done. Carter Fabrication in...

PSC 37 Hydrovane Installation

G'day All,

I'm finally at the point of installing the Hydrovane I purchased a year and a half ago and am curious if anyone has done similar so I can pick their brain.

My first task is...

Re: Crealock 37 dinghy recommendations, anyone?

8' Caribe with a 5HP for putting or 9.9 to plane. The outboard needs some TLC after extensive S&M, so we started using our Trinka 8, rowing everywhere, and haven't even thought about the RHIB since...

Re: Searching for a PSC 37 in OZ

James,

Lived in Sydney and Adelaide for two years and kept looking for one, but you're right, they're hard to come by. See previous post on NiftyNickers, an '82. For the ~60k price, you could...

Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

Boy, I like the look of those. I was avoiding going through the deck, but the naval architect in me is starting to get some big ideas.

I can have some threaded deck sockets (baxter bolts)...

Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

I am definitely interested in seeing what they look like.

We just did our inaugural weekend cruise with the new dinghy, and would like to get it out of the water on the longer runs; we were on...

Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

It's what the Ashley Book of Knots calls them, probably just what everyone else calls lashings, but there was a specific way that the turns were secured.

Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

I'm a traditionalist, so no velcro. I use french lashings to secure my (dyneema) lifelines to the stanchion terminations, they tension up well and don't loosen up at all. I might consult Ashely and...

Re: Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

Thanks. I like that idea. I'm not looking forward to drilling, bolting, glassing, or otherwise having to do alot of invasive work on the deck, so I wonder if I can't just affix the blocks to the...

Hard Dinghy Storage Aboard

I got a great deal this spring on a Trinka 8 and we love it. However, I need to figure out how to stow it aboard. I know it will fit lengthwise upside down between the stays'l and the mast.

Re: Leaking hatches on PSC 37

Seacurves, don't be surprised if the water source isn't condensation associated from the heat of your body and the comparatively cooler tank boundary. We've had that issue quite a bit. I understand...

Re: C37 Anchor Locker Partition

I'd second Dave's comment. You really want a solid material, web or net is going to foul the rode.

We've had a problem with this as well, a bight of chain will get caught on the lip, then all...

Re: Testing Pacific Seacraft propane locker integrity

If you really want to get technical, you can do a hydrostatic test of the compartment like you would do for any tank aboard a vessel.

This is pretty much what MC1 says, except that you fill the...
